Tlio BlllpplllR Ilgnrd will reject tlio bid of tlio Inter nntlonnl Mercantile Marina for all of Ilia Qcrmnn tonnago nplied In American porta, Including ninny Rreat lmcsenrerj liners. Definite announcement win made lo tlilfl effect by John D, Payne, chair man of tho board, To-day.

Ho Indicated that the bids rc-' JJ eel ved probably .would not stand. The Shipping Hoard Is getting cost JS figures on on extensive survey to de rj tcrmlno as closely ns posslblo the final cost of reconditioning: all Of the Vessels.

Washington, Jan. 30. Shipping Board prices on vessels built during nnd lnco tho war are too high to allow American operators to compete with for eign craft, Frank C. Jlunson of New York, bead of the Munson Line, sad to-day before the Senate Commerce Committee considering mercantile ma rine legislation. Prices should be cut from $200 and $225 a ton to $100 flat, ho Bald, to permit the 100-odd American nln opcrntors to get established, his line, he said In answer to questions, Would buy twenty-five or thirty cargo and combined cargo and passenger ves sels at Jhe lower price. Great Britain Is selling Government htps at $125 i ton, Mr. Munson said, and the rcsultlm?" difference In raplt.il posts would make It 4200,000 a year cheaper to operato a British boat than J an American boat In the same .trade. About "3 per cent, of tho Shipping t i Hoard's vessels would be taken at the price he named, Mr. Munson said. If operators were given a tlmo payment plan of purchase. Wooden vessels of the hoard, he said, were not u.eabl, and some of lhe smaller eteel vessels were expensive lo operate, ns wero those ot larger types' which were hastily nnd carelessly turned out during tho war.

Awards Board, said to-day before tho House sub-committee which began heaT "Ings in Its Investigation of tho army's distribution of war decorations, j Suggestions that enlisted men be In cluded, he said, -were made from head quarters of the American Expeditionary Forces, but cabled Instructions from the Department were that enlisted men were ineligible for such awards and that the Order of Merit, formerly tre equivalent of the medal for enlisted personnel, could not be revived. This ruling prohibited many enlisted men from receiving awards, Gen. Devls said, adding that approximately J. 300 medals and more than 0,500 Distin guished Service Crosses were awarded by tho A. E.

To obvlato chargea that tho House Military Com mittee was packed either for or against universal military training Republican House leaders have virtually agreed not to fill a vacancy on the committee, which 4 Is now framing an army reorganization - bill. The vacancy was caused by tho nation of former Representatlv - Ruardla (X. Y.). Representative Har reld (Okia.), nominated as successor, declined to serve after friction amon'-f Republicans had developed to his selec tion because of his opposition to uni versal training. The ""-"litury Committee, now com- posed of twenty members, Is underetood ' to be evenly divided on the ouesllon ot universal' training, though no test ot . sttength has been recorded by fornfal committee action.

The American tank atcnnjlmtp Mlelero, hound from Mntiuirns for Philadelphia vJlth 1,600,006 gallons of molasJca In bulk, wh split In two nfler ft battle ,wlth fierce scaa oft the Georgia coast on Monday, nnd her skipper, Capt. II. C, Simmons of Baltimore and her crow abandoned her In lifeboats. Tho chief officer, third officer and trtelve men, who had been four days In nil -open hont In bitter weather, were picked up at 1 :30 o'clock yesterday morning by the American freighter Oictto about 150 miles enst of Savannah. The Otetto In her wireless relayed tlirough the destroyer Clemsou gave no detnlla of the Wreck. A radio message picked up list night nt Wilmington, N. C, reported thht Capt, t-ilinino"-! mid the rest of the crew were Kicked un lale yesterday afternoon by "ho Htcamship Sucrosn. No confirmation of this wireless had been received In Now York up lo an early hour this morning. Tho owners of tho Mlelero, the Cuba Distilling Company, 27 William street, snld they had received no additional In formation to that sent by radio, nnd they hoped that the skipper nnd his men may have befen picked up by some vessel unequipped with wireless. The Mlelero's cargo, refuse jnolasees, was to have been manufactured Into denatured alcohol. Most of the crew hailed from Bnltlmore, There have been other Instances of tank steamships breaking In two In heavy weather. It Is said their peculiar construction makes them moro subject to the b train of battering combers than other typea of steamships. . The engines of tho Mlelero, like thosi of nearly all other tanks, wero aft. It may bo that the forward half of the Mlelero, after being cut In twain, stayed rtloat some time nnd that the crew took to the boats Immediately after the Acci dent. There have been several cases of this sort In tho history of queer ship wrecks. The Mlelero was built nt Qulncy, Mass., in 1917 and was well equipped, having wireless nnd submarine signals. It Is evident thai her wireless was crip pled before ahe had- a chance to call for help, as nothing was heard from her during the northeaster. CLOTHES OF CUSTOM QUALITY HABIT If it were not for habit, thousands of men would wear Saks-tailoring in stead of custom-tailoring. But the chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken. I BROADWAY An Opera in Two Acts CLEOPATRA'S NIGHT Text by Al'ice L. Pollock Music by Henry Hadley A most important event in the history of tho American operatic stage is the. production at the Metropojitan Opera House, New York, Saturday Matinee, Jan. 31st, of "Cleopatra's Night,1' opera in two acts, by the distinguished composer, Henry Hadley.

The vocal score is complete vith English and French text, and the cover is a superb illustration in colors, showing the beauty of Cleopatra's palace and one of the most gripping dramatic incidents in the stoTy.

' RpnM Dttpatek to Tax Sbn, Washinotow, Jan, 30, "Ily this time to-morrolr evening. I bona w will have all agreement find that we will bo t to stato Its full terms," Thus Benntor Cummins (la.) to-day announced tho status of tho conference on, the railroad legislation, IIo would not ntvo details, but It ttaa teamed thrit the House Conference made a proposition tl their Senate colleagues to-day which brought agreement much more nearly In tight than It has beon at any time, It Is understood that this proposition contemplate t Elimination of the antl-strlhi pro visions of the Senate bill. Acceptance by the House of tho principle and substance of section six of the Senate bill, This Is tho sec tion which provldoa ,for dealing with ' the railroad revenues ns a whole wthln a t-nto making district, giving the railroads a fixed guarttnteo of returns on the investment In each district, nnd giving the Government an interest In tho surplus of earnings beyond tho guaranteed return. While theso two are not the only re malnlng Important points of dlterence between the two houses, they are by far tho meat Important onces. The long and short Dinul clause la etlll outside tho realm of agreerrttrit nnd tho differences are Important, Llkowlso there has been no agreement as to the features dealing with the Panama Canal. ThcKe last two, how ever, are billeved lo be In such status that, with labor nnd Section 6 out of the way, they would not long prevont compieto agreement. The basis of the expected agreement lies In the unalterable opposition of the Houso to the antl-strlke provisions 6t tlie senate Dill. The Senators havo fought hard for these Provisions, but one or them admitted to-day that he "had not talked to a single member of the House of either party who was willing that those provisions should bo Included Irt the legislation." In short, the Sena tors have been forced to tho conclusion that the strike provisions would kill tho legislation If thiy wero Insisted unon. So they have been led to surrender oh this point, In consideration of saving Section 6, which Is the heart of their measure. 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 j 1 1 1 r 1 1 f 1 1 1 1 1 1 j i m 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 il- Russia i f FOODSTUFFS IMPORTS RISE, WASiiiNtfVoN, Jnn, JO, Foodstuffs lm porta In December amounted do nearly doublo the value brought In during De .cember, 1918, while exports of food MtUfTs AHUfllCINTfl, .
